NEW YORK -- Grainy black-and-white surveillance camera footage shows an encounter between Lindsay Lohan and a pedestrian who says she clipped him while driving outside a New York City nightclub and then drove away.
The footage was released Thursday by the New York Police Department. It's blurred to protect the identities of witnesses standing near Lohan's Porsche outside the nightclub at the Dream Hotel in Manhattan.
The footage shows Lohan's car turn toward the crowd, but the blurriness obscures what restaurant worker Jose Rodriguez says was the car hitting him. The car drives off as Rodriguez chases it. Police say the Jersey City, N.J., resident suffered a knee injury.
Lohan was arrested later on charges of leaving the scene of an accident and causing injury. She was given a ticket. Her publicist says the injury claims are false.
